Evolution has a "work offline" mode - and it's easy to get into offline mode...

Take a look at the lower, left-hand part of the window in the status bar. If you see a little plug that's disconnected, click it to connect again. Alternately, you can go to the menu and click File -> Work Online. That does the same thing.

If this doesn't fix it, I'd be really surprised! Things like Airplane Mode might disable it automatically...
